Sep 2014
my insides melt; they're liquid
I wish it were gold
you wrote your secrets on my walls and left me with the remains
burnt to the ground, paper boxes igniting like flies
I kept your kisses in my mouth until they made my teeth fall out

I wish I were as invisible as you've shown me to be
they can see through my flesh but my heart is tucked away
somewhere deep underground where you can't have it
they're disappointed in the show
I'm not apologetic
each crack in my bones is a step toward freedom
and let's not shatter til we've died
